  • (Dexter is inside his laboratory; a metal door closes behind him)
  • (Inside, Dexter jumps and lands on his feet; he cups his ear as several corks fly off the test tubes and as several beeps are heard; green liquid moves down one tube and up the other, electric runs through three diodes, the pistons move, and water shoots out of three pipes; Dexter sighs contently)
  • Dexter: I love the smell of science in the morning.
  • (He tries to run off to the left, but is stopped as Dee Dee kicks the door open, flattening him)
  • Dee Dee: Good morning, Dexter! Dexter?
  • (Pan to Dexter underneath the door; Dee Dee walks by)
  • Dee Dee: Dexter? Oh, Dexter?
  • (She stops in surprise and sees a deactivated robot with a wrench stuck inside its torso; she leans over to it)
  • Dee Dee: Hi!
  • (No response; Dexter brushes the dust off his clothes; alarm bells ring as Dexter jumps in fright)
  • Dexter: Dee Dee, get away from there!
  • (Dee Dee opens her eyes)
  • Dee Dee: Oh, hi, Dexter!
  • (The cord she is hanging on to snaps; she loses her grip and falls, pulling the wrench out of the robot's torso in the process)
  • (Several beeps are heard as the robot stands up and rotates its head; it opens its eyes and stomps toward Dee Dee; at the next step, it raises its foot, but instead falls on its knees in delight)
  • Robot: Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you for saving me! I am at your every command.
  • (Short pause)
  • Dee Dee: Ah! (formally) Robot, I command you to curtsy!
  • (The robot curtsies by sticking one of its legs behind the other and opening its hands, then stands up straight; Dee Dee then claps with the robot joining in; she and the robot then scream, then both are interrupted as Dexter screams over them while covering his ears)
  • Dexter: Stop that yelling! Screaming is not permitted in the lab, [Dee Dee and the robot look at each other, then exit to the left] neither is clapping, curtsies, or any silly behavior. Do you understand?
  • (He looks around; no response)
  • Dexter: And stay out!
  • (His head turns red while red steam flows out from the top; fade to black; cut to a large pink question mark on a black background; Dee Dee leans in from the right)
  • Dee Dee: Hey, Robot, what time is it?
  • (The robot leans in from the left)
  • Robot: I don't know. What time is it?
  • (Cut to Dee Dee in her room)
  • Dee Dee: It's time to help Dee Dee get ready for school!
  • (She jumps into the air, with her slippers coming off her feet; the robot is seen holding Dee Dee's everyday dress, which she slips through leaving her blouse behind; she and the robot then hop across the room, with Dee Dee putting her socks on and the robot brushing her hair; they hop back to the left, with Dee Dee brushing her teeth and the robot putting her shoe on; they again hop to the right, with Dee Dee tying her shoe and the robot flossing her teeth; the robot then puts Dee Dee's pigtails on her head as if it was screwing in two lightbulbs)
  • (The robot cleans its stomach; Dee Dee looks at her reflection; cut to Mom at the stairs)
  • Mom: Dee Dee, time for school!
  • (Cut back to Dee Dee and the robot)
  • Dee Dee: School, schmool! I want to stay and play with you.
  • (The robot gets an idea)
  • Robot: I'll go to school with you!
  • Dee Dee: Silly robot, school is for kids!
  • Robot: But we're friends. I'll do whatever you want. [it holds a pencil; a buffer is seen coming out of its right index finger] I'll polish your pencils, [it is seen holding three stacks of textbooks] carry your books, [it is then seen holding a sandwich] eat your sandwich, yum!
  • (The robot eats the sandwich; the word "CHOMP" flies up as it eats)
  • Dee Dee: Okay, *sternly* but you'll have to be on your best behavior.
  • (The robot quickly smiles)
  • Robot: Okay!
  • (It grabs Dee Dee and races out of the house, with her riding piggyback; they pass by a school bus, with the robot waving at the kids and them waving back; the robot runs through a bush, a wooden fence, and a stone wall, leaving Dee Dee with a black eye and a leaf in her mouth; cut to a diving board; the robot jumps off it and crashes into the roof of Huber Elementary with Dee Dee in tow)
  • (The robot lands in the hallways; Dee Dee slides off its back; several students crowd around her)
  • Boy: Gosh, Dee Dee, are you okay?
  • Dee Dee: Well, my head sort of hurts...
  • Girl: Look, it's a robot!
  • (The students encircle the robot while cheering; it is seen holding up two students in its arms and a boy in the palm of its left hand; the school bell rings; cut to a classroom)
  • Teacher: Morning, class, today is surprise quiz day.
  • (She holds up three papers with the word "QUIZ" written at the top; the students groan and then proceed to do their quizzes; pan over to Dee Dee and the robot; Dee Dee taps her pencil on her desk; the robot looks around)
  • Robot: Paraguay, soybeans, the Russians, 36.
  • Dee Dee: [shushes] *while whispering* Stop making me cheat.
  • Robot: Abe Lincoln, Sri Lanka, the Andalusian mountains.
  • Dee Dee: [loudly] Stop!
  • Teacher: Dee Dee! No talking during the quiz.
  • Boy: Ha ha! (he points his finger at Dee Dee) Cheater, cheater.
  • Dee Dee: Quit it.
  • (The robot looks at the boy angrily; its mouth is red)
  • Robot: Be nice!
  • (It fires its lasers at the boy, who howls in pain while holding onto his rear)
  • Teacher: Dee Dee, tell your guest to behave!
  • Dee Dee: But I didn't ask him to!
  • Teacher: No "buts".
  • Dee Dee: You dummy! Now I'm in trouble!
  • Robot: But I--
  • Dee Dee: No "buts"!
  • (Cut to a still image of the robot wearing a dunce cap on its head while it frowns; wipe to the house, then cut to Dee Dee's room; she, Lee Lee, Mee Mee, and the robot are seen playing with Darbie dolls; Mee Mee puts a dress on Darbie)
  • Robot: That dress doesn't go on Darbie. [it takes the dress off] It goes on Corky.
  • (Cut to a background with Dee Dee, Mee Mee, and Lee Lee's heads on it)
  • Mee Mee: Get back, metal man. [while pulling Darbie out of the robot's grasp] Darbies are for girls.
  • (The girls laugh as the robot frowns; Lee Lee holds up a Corky doll)
  • Lee Lee: Darbie makes Corky go to the dance naked!
  • (The girls laugh some more; Dee Dee pulls out a Ben doll wearing a disco outfit)
  • Dee Dee: And Disco Ben can be there too!
  • (Mee Mee takes Disco Ben out of Dee Dee's hand)
  • Mee Mee: No! Disco Ben wouldn't be there. The dance party is private, and he isn't even on the guest list!
  • Lee Lee: Yeah!
  • (Mee Mee throws the Disco Ben doll at the wall; Dee Dee's eyes well up with tears and she starts crying; the robot, who is seen standing with its fists on its torso, fires its lasers at Mee Mee and Lee Lee, who both get out of the way and hide behind Dee Dee's bed as the lasers fly; Mee Mee and Lee Lee then run for it)
  • (The robot fires two lasers at Mee Mee and two lasers at Lee Lee; the girls jump as the lasers strike down on them; they jump out of the window; Dee Dee gets mad and turns to face the robot)
  • Dee Dee: Those were my friends!
  • Robot: I thought we were friends.
  • Dee Dee: [while pointing at the robot] Friends don't do what you did!
  • (Cut to the room door; Mom opens it)
  • Mom: Are you kids playing nice?
  • (She opens her eyes and looks at Dee Dee's room, which is a mess as a result of the robot's destructive behavior; some of her things are on fire)
  • Mom: What a filthy child I've raised! Now you clean your room and do your homework!
  • (Tears slide down from Dee Dee's eyes; the robot gears up to fire its lasers; Dee Dee catches on)
  • Dee Dee: Mom, your roast is on fire!
  • Mom: The roast?!
  • (She closes the door just as the robot fires its laser, making a big hole in the wall; Mom runs to the right)
  • Dee Dee: I can't believe you tried to zap my mom!
  • (She kicks the robot in its shin, then jumps on one foot, holds her other foot, and yelps in pain)
  • Dee Dee: Oh, you...!
  • (She hops to Dexter's laboratory; the robot sadly looks at her; fade to Dexter's laboratory; he is seen pouring green liquid from a test tube into a flask; Dee Dee runs toward him and starts shaking; the test tube falls on Dexter's work desk, creating a small puddle)
  • Dee Dee: Dexter, Dexter, that stupid robot zapped my friends and tried to zap Mom!
  • (Dexter's glasses spin in the air; he catches them by the edges and puts them back on; he smiles maliciously)
  • Dexter: [mockingly] What's this? A cry for help?
  • Dee Dee: [close to crying] Stop it, Dexter!
  • Dexter: Could it be that my dear sister finally gets what she deserves?
  • (He laughs evilly)
  • Dee Dee: [crying] Stop it! Stop... S... Stop being so mean!
  • (Cut to the lab doors; shadows of Dexter laughing and Dee Dee crying are seen on the floor; the robot peers into the lab and sees the action unfolding; it reacts in shock; cut to Dexter then pan to Dee Dee, both in slow motion; Dexter points and laughs at Dee Dee while she cries)
  • (The robot, not standing for this, glares at Dexter and stomps its foot, cracking the ground; it then stomps toward him, to which he walks backwards to a wall while cowering in fear; Dexter looks around and realizes he's trapped)
  • Dexter: Dee Dee, make it stop. Please, please!
  • (The robot, while towering over Dexter with rage, prepares its lasers; Dee Dee picks up a wrench and throws it at the robot's torso, shutting it down as the robot hunches over; Dexter exerts a sigh of relief while rubbing his head)
  • Dexter: Dee Dee, how did you stop that [while rolling his eyes] crazy robot?
  • Dee Dee: Beats me.
  • (Pan over to the torso; the wrench is stuck inside the robot's torso; two wires are exposed)
  • Dexter: Thank you. Thank you, I'm at your every command.
  • (Fade to black, then cut to Dee Dee's room; they hop to the right; Dexter is seen brushing Dee Dee's hair while she looks at him uncomfortably while putting her socks on; they hop to the left; Dexter flosses Dee Dee's teeth while Dee Dee ties her shoes as she looks at her brother; they both fall down; Dee Dee propels Dexter off her with her feet)
  • Dee Dee: Thanks, but no thanks, Dexter. I can dress myself.
  • (Angered, Dexter's eyes turn red and he fires lasers at Dee Dee; iris cut to black)
